When I found out that work would take me to Timmins for a few weeks I had visions of being in the "Frozen Tundra" with little to do outside of work. Little did I know at that time that two months following my work visit I would be bringing my family with me to visit a community that I fell in love with.
For the first time since the kids have been old enough to travel and truly enjoy it, we were in a place where the whole family not only got to enjoy a number of the typical tourist attractions that many communities have but, more importantly, our visit to Timmins gave my family an opportunity to explore the "great outdoors" while being close enough to the city to eat in good restaurants and sleep in a comfortable hotel.
On how many trips can your daughter catch her first fish and have it cooked for her at a local restaurant, pet a moose and get to go underground dressed in a miner's outfit all in the same weekend.
So good was our experience in Timmins that my wife and I have talked about bringing the kids back on March Break to see what Timmins might have to offer during the winter.
